The New York International Children’s Film Festival gives movie-lovers the opportunity to see U.S. premieres of international films and get sneak previews of the best upcoming shorts, features, and documentaries. NYICFF is an Oscar-qualifying festival, and in the past four years alone it has screened 11 films that were later nominated for Academy Awards.
Along with a carefully selected collection of feature films from around the world, this year’s festival includes six short film programs, kid-friendly opening and closing galas, filmmaker Q&A’s, film making workshops, and the NYICFF Awards Ceremony on March 25, when the 2012 jury — including silver screen greats like Susan Sarandon and Uma Thurman — will announce the best of the fest.
The festival runs March 3-25 in various locations around New York City.
